Yesterday, the devotion leader of our Soul Food worship team, asked us to close our eyes and imagine the scene of Jesus' crucifixion. We imagined being a member of the jostling crowd in the marketplace, listening to the yells, whispers, and chatter of the people, feeling the warmth of the day fade away as a dark cloud came across the sky above the three men hanging on the crosses.

 Then we imagined that the people slowly scattered to seek refuge from impending rain, yet we stayed and walked up toward the King of the Jews and looked into his eyes.

She ended with this question: "What would he say to you as your gazes locked?" We sat in silence for a few minutes in a quiet meditation listening to what Jesus would say to us as individuals.

Perhaps today you could find a few moments to quiet your soul, imagine that scene, and listen and wait for God's message to you.

Be still and know that I am God: Psalm 42:10
